Check out the full fight card and bout order for UFC Fight Night: Okami vs. Saint Preux, which takes place on Friday, September 22nd in Saitama, Japan.
The next UFC show is actually on a Friday night at the Saitama Super Arena in Japan. Time zone differences mean that the card is technically on a Saturday, but who’s up for some Friday Night Fights? The main event was supposed to be a rematch between Mauricio Rua and Ovince Saint Preux, but Shogun suffered an injury, and the replacement is... Yushin Okami?! Why yes, Okami is a former UFC middleweight title challenger, but he’s also been fighting at welterweight recently. There’s now a non-zero chance that next week could usher in the era of Yushin Okami: ranked light heavyweight.
